Advent Bible Study..."The Miracle of Christmas"

The season of Advent is nearly upon us. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of decorating and shopping, but why not take a break from all the chaos and spend some time reflecting on the real reason for our joy at this time of year. A four week Advent study, "The Miracle of Christmas " will be offered beginning November 27. A morning session will begin at 10:00 a.m. on that day, and an evening group will meet on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. beginning December 6. This study will be an opportunity to join with other Methodists in our community, as well.
Please contact the church office @ 637-3734 by November 15 if you plan to take part so that study books may be ordered.

Community Thanksgiving Service

The Scott County Ministerial Alliance invites you to attend the annual Community Thanksgiving celebration on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at the Assembly of God Church on south Main Street. The service will begin at 7:00 p.m. and our own, Rev. Lynn McClure will present the message. Let's join with other Christians from all over our area to worship and give thanks to God, who blesses us abundantly. For more information or for a ride to the service, please contact the church office
at 637-3734.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Or it will soon! A beautiful Chrismon tree, vibrant poinsettias, flickering candlelight...some of the sights of this inspiring season. Help us decorate our church home for the holidays! On Sunday, Nov. 12, following morning worship, we will have a pot-luck lunch to help fuel us for an afternoon of Chrismon making. Everyone can take part in this wonderful tradition. Then on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 7:00 p.m. we will begin decorating the sanctuary in preparation for Advent. The Hanging of the Green service will be December 3 during morning worship. At this service is when we will climb the extremely tall ladder and place the Chrismons on the tree. We also invite you to place poinsettias in memory or honor of someone special. These beautiful plants add such a festive look to the sanctuary.
Let's get caught up in the wonder and hope that is Christmas and enjoy opportunities for fellowship and service.
